Announcing SMHS ‘s SPRING PLAY!
THE IMPORTANCE OF BEING EARNEST.’ Directed by SMHS drama teacher Brad Friedman, who played Algernon in high school and still remembers his lines!.... What’s in a name? Ask Gwendolen and Cecily, two young ladies who always dreamed of marrying a man called Ernest. Enter Algernon and Jack, two charming but rather dishonest gentlemen who are more than willing to oblige the ladies’ desire. Stir in enough complications to send all of London into a spin, and you have one of the wittiest romantic confections ever created for the stage.

Performances Thursday April 20th- Sunday April 23rd.
Tickets are now on sale at smhsdrama.org for our spring play. 

Adults: $15; Senior/Student: $5; Special student seats $5 available at the door or at lunchtime sales on April 19th and 20th.
